    santa hat brownie bites -- great christmas dessert idea (perfect finger food for your holiday festivities!)

  • Jennifer Caldwell

    strawberry santa hat Aren’t these Santa Hat Brownies just so cute? Thanks to Erica’s Sweet Tooth for the inspiration. I was looking for a fun and simple holiday treat and I ran across a recipe on her website. They’re so good and easy to make, especially since I bought Trader Joe’s Ready to Bake brownie mix (just pour the ready-made brownie batter in an 8X8 pan and bake for 22-25 minutes). I whipped up some vanilla-mascarpone buttercream to simulate the white trim on the hats. Voila! A festive dessert to get everyone into the spirit of the holidays. It really is beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here! Santa Hat Brownies Adapted from this recipe found on Erica’s Sweet Tooth Yields 12-16 brownies Ingredients: 1 pan of your favorite brownies, cooled and cut into desired size and shape (I used a round cutter) 12-16 small strawberries, cleaned and hulled vanilla-mascarpone buttercream (recipe below) Mascarpone Buttercream Ingredients: 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature 8 ounces mascarpone cheese, room temperature 2-1/2 to 3 cups powdered sugar 2 teaspoons vanilla extract pinch of salt Method: Using a stand mixer with a paddle attachment, beat butter and mascarpone cheese until light and creamy, about 2 minutes. Add vanilla extract and salt. Add 2-1/2 cups of sugar, half a cup at a time and continue beating until smooth. Add more sugar, if needed to reach desired consistency and sweetness. To assemble, pipe a ring of vanilla buttercream on top of each brownie. Cut off the base of a strawberry so it is flat and place it upside down on each brownie, pushing slightly to secure in place. Top the tip of the strawberry with a dot of buttercream to finish the santa hat. ADVERTISEMENT Share this: Email Print Like this: Like 74 bloggers like this post. Tagsbrownies

The famed Baked brownie: I made this and absolutely LOVED it! Its been years of trying brownie recipes that my husband will admit are better than "Boxed" brownies - as those are his favorite. Well, after trying these ones - we found our winner! He FINALLY likes a homemade recipe better than the boxed kind! :) This is a keeper and one I'll make many more times.
